Daily Bible Reflections - March 8,2013


BEARING FRUIT
 
Because of me you bear fruit. – Hosea 14:9
More than 15 years ago, my life was in a drought. It was dry and empty.
I had a business, yes, but there was no life in it despite the daily busyness.
Our shops were just in front of the church, but I rarely went to Mass.
I read a lot, but I failed to read the life-giving Word of God.
In that emptiness and dryness, God spoke.
He called — and I unknowingly listened to His promptings in my heart.
Because I listened, things started to come alive in my life.
After several retreats, recollections, a life-changing pilgrimage to the Holy Land and community life, I was ready to bear fruit for Him.
Service to God took several forms in the beginning —counseling, teaching, facilitating workshops — until finally He led me to that one thing that I could do best for Him: writing.
And only because of Him do I bear fruit in what I am doing now. Tess V. Atienza (svp_tvatienza@yahoo.com)
 
Reflection: Does your life bear fruit now?
 
Continue, Lord, to make my life fruitful for Your glory.
 
St. John of God, religious, pray for us.
